Biotic stress traits

The Genetic Analysis project has worked on resistance against cereal cyst nematode, powdery mildewnet-form net blotchspot-form net blotch and scald.

What about rusts? Genetic analysis and marker development for resistance against rust pathogens is carried out by the Australian Cereal Rust Control Program. As part of that program, Urmil Bansal of the University of Sydney has developed a marker manual: Markers Linked to Rust Resistance Genes: Protocols & Validation.
